I really like the look of the new Macbooks and I'm tempted to buy one. I've always found Apple laptops to be good quality and well designed, and also well made and sturdy, unlike some poor quality Windows laptops I have owned in the past. I really like the OS as well, I find it easy to work with and also do fun stuff like photos and graphics as well. The only thing that stopped me buying one previously was the fact that I need to run certain Windows applications for work and they aren't available on the Mac. But now that the Mac can run Windows programs and even boot Windows, I'm finding myself being swayed towards buying a Macbook. My only concern is that Apple's normally sturdy design seems to have slipped a bit on the Macbook. I've heard reports of laptops being stained yellow after only a couple of weeks and Apple don't cover this on their warranty, reports of overheating and kernel panics, and reports of difficulty typing on the new style keyboard (which worries me a lot as I have arthritis and struggle with typing to begin with). There's also the problem with the lack of a dvd writer on the basic model (which is the only one that's within my price range, and not having a dvd writer is a bit pathetic in this day and age, even the most rubbishy windows laptops have one), and the integrated graphics issue (I don't know if this will affect my ability to do graphics and photos etc). I'm interested to know what other people think of these issues. Would the risk of ending up with a yellow stained laptop after a fortnight put you off buying a Macbook? Do you think the integrated graphics and lack of a dvd writer be a problem? Is there a serious overheating issue or is it just few isolated cases? Thanks in advance for all replies.
